I am done.....again! Decided against the maintenance clinical trial. I would have to have anoyher infusion of Taxol. My neuropathy is already bad and that would make it worse and permanent according to my oncologist. Plus with my luck I would get taxol in the study instead of the no side effect drug. My doctor said that the jury is still out on maintenance and for now he doesn't recommend it. So I am done! Hasn't sunk in yet, chemo has been so much a part of my life for six months. My hair is just starting to come back. I can't wait to dye it again!
I do feel a little funny about stopping chemo. At least when I was on it I felt I was doing a job and fighting the good fight. Now I am on my own and have to fight it from within. Sort of scary to think of chemo as a security blanket. Read another study blaming carbs for cancer. I will definitely cut down but I love carbs!
In complete remission and on the road to recovery! Could not have done it with all the help and support I receive here. Thanks so much ladies!
